More about Brian Westre
San Diego "Native"
I have loved living in San Diego county for most of my life. I moved to San Diego in 1969 and I have either lived, or worked, in most every area of the county. I have sold homes as far north as Oceanside and Vista, and as far south as Chula Vista. Let me put that experience to work for you either to help you find the right home in the best neighborhood for you, or help you get the most for your home when selling.
Certified Residential Specialist and Relocation Specialist
I take great pride in the fact that I have earned the CRS designation. Only 4% of independent agents nationwide are able to carry that title. To qualify one must have accrued enough practical experience (sold homes) and taken several hard hitting courses, and successfully passed many tests along the way. I worked hard for it and would love to let it work for you. As they say, "Get Serious, Get a CRS"Certified Relocation Specialist: I have attained certification to handle all the corporate relocation needs of my clients by virtually any employer sponsored move. Years ago, when I was in the corporate world, I was relocated several times across the country and across the ocean. I know what a strain a transfer and move put on a family and know how to ease that transition.
CDPE, RCS-D, SRES, e-PRO and CNS
The real estate landscape changes all the time and the only way to stay current is to take continuing education courses and designations.
CDPE is Certified Distressed Property Expert. Someone that is in a financially distressed situation needs expert guidance on how to navigate the course of a potential short sale.
RCS-D is Real Estate Collaborative Specialist Divorce. Going through a divorce is very difficult personally, and financially. How to handle the number one asset for the family is critical.
SRES gave me insight into the unique personal and financial situations for the growing senior market in the country and how to best serve their needs.
e-PRO is dedicated to giving me the tools to best serve my clients with their home sale by maximizing the potential of the internet. The internet is a powerful tool that has surpassed print advertising as the vehicle to maximize exposure for homes for sale.
CNS is one of my favorites as negotiating takes place throughout the transaction, not just during the discussion of price.
Leadership and Achievements
I believe in giving back where possible and stay very active in the industry and the community. I was awarded the REALTOR of the Year for San Diego in 2011 and was a finalist in 2007 and 2009; I was Rookie of the Year for San Diego County my first year in the business. I am on the Board of Directors locally at the San Diego Association of Realtors and at the state level at the California Association of Realtors as well as serving on various other committees at both. I am past President of the Poway Real Estate Professionals and Past President of the Congregation Council at my church.
